British millionaire victim of £1m robbery in her Algarve home

Written By Lara Silva

The home of British millionaire Carolyn Radford was robbed in early August in the Algarve. Four masked men robbed the home while the Mansfield Town president was watching television alone in bed. 

Carolyn Radford described the robbery on Instagram, saying that over 1 million pounds of jewelry and watches were stolen from her Quinta do Lago home, leaving her “traumatized and devastated.” 

The Judiciary Police is investigating the robbery, so she could not provide further details. However, she said that “more than the loss of our personal belongings, our sense of security and safety has been totally violated.”

Her three children were not home at the time. The robbery came just a year and a half after her engagement ring was stolen on a school run in Portugal.

She also said that “it also comes just under three years since our home in the UK was burgled by a gang specifically targeting the homes of high-profile businessmen and women, footballers and celebrities.”

The British millionaire is one of the youngest women in the UK to own a soccer team and reportedly has a net worth of over 8 million pounds.
